The Indispensable Guide to End of Life Care

Sharyl B. Peterson

THE INDISPENSABLE GUIDE TO END-OF-LIFE CARE. Are you afraid of death, are you even more afraid to talk with someone about death? What do you as a Christian caregiver have to offer that is different from others? The Indispensable Guide to End-of-Life Care focuses on the dimensions of end-of-life pastoral care for those about to enter caregiving ministry. Sharyl Peterson explores the relational journey that you will go through when ministering to those who are facing end-of-life situations, and she guides you on the fundamental elements that you must ascertain and apply when counseling those who are losing or have lost loved ones.


ABOUT THE SERIES
The Indispensable Guide Series offers tightly focused, relatively brief, accessible, and practical books for students in seminary, multiple paths to ministry groups, and lay ministry programs. Each book introduces core concepts, provides ample illustrations, and includes a helpful resource list.
